The Fantasist

Rarely have I seen a play that so deftly switched between beauty, joy, terror and despair; playful and funny one moment, seductive and disturbing the next. This mirrored the mind of Louise, the bi-polar protagonist expertly realised by Julia Yevnine, whose descent into a private world, creative and destructive, was brought to life by fellow performers Ina Berggren and Cat Gerrard’s puppetry. Each puppet was imbued with such detail that I could swear I saw their immovable faces change expression. Full of moments of theatrical invention, the final image especially will stay with me for a very long time.
